What The Hell Is Wrong With Me?

Please tell me there is someone, anyone, else who cried at the Logies!!!!
I'm beginning to have a suspicion that my husband is right and I am, in fact, a nutcase! It all started with Heath. I usually well up big time in the Memorandum montage, we have lost so many fine young talents over the last few years, but this year I sobbed. I couldn't stop! I think I have somehow managed to pretend that Heath did not in fact die and he is out there somewhere doing his thing.

You can't argue with a Memorandum Montage though. It's a sledgehammer to the guts. Heath is dead.

I had just started to recover and compose myself when they announced the nominees for Most Outstanding Public Affairs Report! Australian Story won for their intimate documentary based on Belinda Emmett, partly made before she lost her battle with life. And Jen sobs again.

To cap it all off the lovely Kate Ritchie deservedly won the Gold and although this was very exciting, her speech completely did me in. More sobbing and with very sore eyes I sheepishly packed myself off to bed.

I am pathetic!

Surfer Boy is correct.

Yes you lead a very sad life ..... most people only watch the red carpet arrival but I have to say i did channel surf and saw the part of Heath, and the tears started to well ....
So this time I agree with Surfer Boy :-)

Yes you are Pathetic - you can't cry at the Logies! However I find myself crying at RSPCA Animal Rescue regularly - I'm blaming the preggo hormones though. Maybe that's your problem!

Yup - pathetic (sort of).
I bailed from the Logies after the red carpet but did see Australian Story when they did the Belinda Emmett story. I have never been much a Rove or Belinda fan, but that story made me cry buckets.
I liked Kate's dress.
